    Need you to check my translation for these sentences

    Privet Fcem
    I just want to be sure if this is the right translation and if you have any notes or points ,you want to add , i am ready and happy to know them

    1-Don't make their silence deceives you " it is like an advice "
    Пусть своем молчание не вводит вас в заблуждение

    2-Volcanoes can remain dormant for many years (or for centuries) but when they wake up from their sleep , no one can stay/stop eruption ( it is a comparison to explain that people can't be patient forever and they revolutionize one day )
    Вулканы могут пробыть в спячке много лет (или в течение веков) , но когда они пробуждаются, никто не может остановить извержение (  это сравнение объяснить, что люди не могут быть пациентом всегда, и они в один прекрасный день революции)


    3-when your people go out to demonstrate not against you personally but against corruption , etc.
    когда ваш народ выходит на демонстрации , он выступает не против вас персонально , но против коррупции , и.т.д

    4-one day , he can threaten your throne ( here "He" refers to "народ " )
    когда-нибудь он смогу угрожать вашему трон

    5-Rain starts with a single drop, and then they turn into a downpour, and no one is able to stop and count them. ( it is a comparison to explain how protesters are raising in the demonstrations )
    Дождь начинается с одной капли, потом они превращаются в ливень, и уже никто не в силах их сосчитать и остановить (  это сравнение объяснить, как протестующие поднимают в демонстрациях)

    Thanks for your help

    As the matter of fact we have two set phrases to mean a dormant volacano and active volcano

    Спящий вулкан - a dormant one
    Действующий вулкан - an active one

    Вулкан в спячке doesn't really sound good though understandable, so I suppose it can be used allegorically but I'd not recommend that to a foreigner.
    I do not claim that my opinion is absolutely true.
    If you've spotted any mistake in my English, please, correct it. I want to be aware of any mistakes to efficiently eliminate them before they become a habit.

    The original phrase of yours is already good enough but if you insist:

    Спящий вулкан может оставаться таковым многие годы или даже века, но когда он просыпается, уже никто и ничто не может его остановить.
